About Neubauer's Auto Repair Ellicott City, MD

Established in 1947

Jim Neubauer started with his grandfather; Pete Reichardt, who started Reichardt’s Esso in 1947, on the corner of Route 40 and Frederick Road in Howard County, MD. “I remember when I was young (still in diapers), I would crawl through the rows of tires that were for sale. Later In my younger years back in the 1960s, when customers would come in for gas, I would have to stand on oil cans to reach customer’s windshields to clean them. Back then, my payment was a dime for the Pepsi machine.”

In the 1970s, Pete retired and sold the Esso station to Will Neubauer (my father) which then became Neubauer’s Exxon. I was in charge of cleaning restrooms and progressed from there. After finishing school, I started turning wrenches for my father full-time. In 1989, I retired my father and took over Neubauer’s Exxon.

In 2002, I left the gasoline business and bought the building on Chevrolet Drive in Ellicott City, which currently houses Neubauer’s Auto Repair. Today I have both of my kids working along with myself in the business. Chelsea (my daughter) works in the front with the customers and Seth (my son) works on servicing customers’ vehicles. Those two now make the fourth generation here at Neubauer’s.

Jim has built the Ellicott City, Maryland auto repair business into the busy, well-respected shop it is today. He is proud of the reputation that’s been built. Neubauer’s Auto Repair strives to be the best auto repair service in the area.

  • Change Engine OIL and Filter. Lube Chassis where necessary. Inspect tires and adjust tire pressure as necessary. Inspect and top off all fluids. Minor inspection of car for needed services and maintenance.
  • Cooling System Service: Perform 3 step cooling system process using BG Coolant Flush System. Step 1 includes cooling system cleaner to loosen and remove scaling in the radiator, water pump and the engine. Step 2 includes the removal of the coolant and back flushing the coolant system. Step 3 includes adding conditioner and sealant with new coolant and protecting the coolant system from freezing to a minimum of -50 degrees. Re-inspect cooling system for leaks and proper operation. Road test as necessary for proper engine cooling operation. Note: The coolant system will sometimes get air trapped somewhere deep in the engine. They are called air pockets and may not all work themselves out at the time of service. While we attempt to keep air pockets to a minimum, sometimes it becomes necessary to top off the coolant when the air pockets work themselves out. We ask you to bring your vehicle back in a couple of days so we can perform a quick visual inspection of the coolant system and top off the coolant. This only takes a couple of minutes while you wait.

  • Drain Master Cylinder and clean (where applicable) Fill Master Cylinder with new fluid. Open Bleeders, attach flushing equipment to pull new brake fluid through all 4 wheels until contaminated fluid is completely out of system.
  • Four Wheel Alignment: Road test vehicle for proper and improper road handling characteristics. Test for vehicle pull. (Vehicle pulling to either side can be one of two problems. The alignment out of specs can attribute to the pull as well as a tire itself causing the pull) Set up vehicle on alignment machine, Measure and set air pressure in tires to proper inflation. Take alignment readings. Inspect steering for any mechanical damage before making any adjustments. Evaluate readings and make all necessary adjustments. (Certain vehicles may require special adjustments above the normal toe and thrust angle adjustments which will incur extra time and associated costs) Road test vehicle for improved road handling. Note: Certain vehicles today have fixed alignment positions that are not adjustable. Some vehicles have no camber or caster adjustments. Pot holes can wreak havoc on certain steering and suspension systems. We make every attempt to bring your vehicle within specs. If the caster adjustments are out of specs and their is no adjustment then a pull to one side will be likely. The only way to repair is replacement of fixed suspension parts and possibly body shop repairs.

Services Performed
  • Perform BG Intake System Cleaning. This service is designed to loosen and remove carbon build up on the air intake system of the vehicle. Decarbonizing Top Engine Service. Remove all necessary engine components to access intake system. Connect decarbonizing unit to vehicle air intake system. Start engine, perform decarbonizing service. This process uses strong detergents to loosen carbon deposits that have built up over years of engine operation. Once the carbon has been softened, the next process helps remove the carbon sludge from the intake system. The process also cleans the intake valves in the engine and loosens and removes carbon inside the engine. (The final step requires the vehicle to be driven and the fuel additive continues to remove carbon. We recommend using an entire tank of gas before re-filling the gas tank as not to reduce the dilution of the cleaner.) Remove cleaning equipment and re-assemble any necessary engine components. Road test vehicle for proper engine performance. Carbon build up in the engine robs power and performance. Carbon absorbs the fuel that is intended to burn and causes the engine to not perform properly. (Run too lean) Carbon build up deep inside the engine also causes the internal engine temperature to exceed normal levels and causes excessive air pollutants. Thus causing the vehicle to fail emissions.
  • Cabin Filter: This is an air filter for the inside of your vehicle. It filters out air born particulates from the outside air that comes from your heater and a/c unit. Remove lower dash panel, remove bracing rod as necessary to access the cabin filter. Remove and replace the filter unit. Re-assemble the interior components and test the blower function.
  • Trans Drain and Fill
  • Diff Fluid
  • Remove tires from vehicle. Set up on Computer Tire Balancer. Perform balance test. Remove all existing weights and re-test balance. Perform proper tire balance to true balance. Move tire position to cross tires going on front and move front tires straight back to rear. (Directional Tires cannot be cross rotated and must stay on the same side of the vehicle and can only be rotated front to rear.) Re-install tire on vehicle and road test for proper vehicle road handling. Note: If tires have not been rotated at proper intervals, the tires that were originally on the rear of the vehicle can have a chopped wear pattern on the tread and when re-positioned on the front of the vehicle may cause some vibration and noise. Balancing will not get rid of this noise. Some tires may quiet down after a few thousand miles. Others will continue to make noise until replaced. Note: Tires need to be related periodically to even out the wear to maximise the life of a tire. Front tires wear on the edges due to the steering. Rear tires wear more flat but will cup due to the light rear ends. Tire rotation is designed to keep the cupping and […]
